My oldest and one of my dearest friends was married this past summer and I was SO lucky I was able to fly out to Bend, Oregon to photograph her wedding! Amber and I met back in 3rd grade. We were in the same class and we were on the same cheerleading squad. There are so many memories spending the night together, going on trips together, cheering together and basically just growing up togetherShe broke my heart a little when she moved out to Oregon, but after visiting I completely understand why she loves it there so much. I have never been in a place where you are in a forest that opens up to an ocean, but if you drive 2 hours the other direction you are in the desert with tall orange rock formations (Smith Rock is BEAUTIFUL)! There are snow capped mountains all around you, clear turquoise lakes and snow in July! Seriously, it’s a magical place.
Amber and Ray’s wedding couldn’t have been any more beautiful. It was a small and intimate ceremony in a field with purple flowers with the most beautiful mountains as a backdrop. They had their reception at a park with homemade food, homemade beer, yummy cake and corn hole. It was perfect! <3
Here are a few of my favorites from their wedding day!
Another beautiful Biltmore Village Inn wedding is on the blog this afternoon! I love shooting at the Biltmore Village Inn. The atmosphere is absolutely beautiful and intimate and it seems all of my brides there are so laid back and fun to work with. Mandi and Charlie were no exception! They were both so wonderful to work with. Their ceremony was on a beautiful June afternoon, with only close family there to witness their wedding. It was a small and sweet ceremony.
Congratulations on your marriage Mandi and Charlie!
